D  Bm  C  4X

D        
Yesterday some guy in Atlanta,
                      Bm                C
Climbed one of those huge construction cranes.
D            
He said he had a gun and in the noonday sun, 
   Bm                       C
He kept the whole world at bay.
D                                                   Bm  C
And the folks on the ground tried to talk him down all day
D                                            Bm       C
But in the soft Georgia summer twilight, he jumped anyway.

   G              Bm  C
- Some men fall, some fly.
 G                Bm    C
Some men stumble, some shine.
         Am
In the grandest scheme sometimes it seems
       F 
There ain't no scheme at all.
 G              Bm   C
Some men fall, some fly. -

     D                                           Bm        C
And yesterday, the guy who played Archie Bunker, he died, too.
D                        
And so did John Lee Hooker,
                     Bm                C
One of the last real bad asses of the blues.
D                                            Bm          C
Now you know, they both went through all the same trails we do...
D                
But they kept right on walkin, 
                Bm                  C
Like there was something that they knew.

   G              Bm  C
- Some men fall, some fly.
 G                Bm    C
Some men stumble, some shine.
         Am
In the grandest scheme sometimes it seems
       F 
There ain't no scheme at all.
 G              Bm   C
Some men fall, some fly. -

D         
And last night, after the longest day of the year,
Bm              C
A baby boy was born
      D                                       Bm               C
To a world that can be as cold and mean as it can be safe and warm.
      D                         Bm                  C
And hopefully, his family will clothe him and feed him,
D                    
And then give him every hope and prayer,
              Bm   C
Cause little brother, you're gonna need 'em.

   G              Bm  C
- Some men fall, some fly.
 G                Bm    C
Some men stumble, some shine.
         Am
In the grandest scheme sometimes it seems
       F 
There ain't no scheme at all.
          G              Bm   C
No, just some men fall, some fly.
       G              Bm   C
Yeah, some men fall, some fly.
C
Some men fly, yeah fly.
